Primary Program

This morning we had our Primary Program. I always look forward to it because I love seeing the kids and all the songs are great, there is just such a pure spirit that comes from the Primary kids. Alex was asked to give a talk about the Temple. He was not happy about it when I told him, in fact he cried and whined about it for several hours.
He was only 4 when we were sealed and he didn't remember too much about it. I asked Alexa to tell him what she remembered and also Rich and I talked to him about it to try to jog his memory. Here is the talk that we all came up with together and the one that he gave in Sacrament Meeting:

When I was 4 I got to go to the Logan Temple with my Mom and Rich and Alexa so we could be sealed as a family for eternity.

Me and Alexa waited in a room with some really nice Grandma's and colored and watched a movie. When it was time they took us in a room where my Mom and Rich and all our family was waiting for us. We kneeled around an alter and put our hands on top of each others. There were mirrors on all the walls and you could see yourself forever. I remember being very happy and everyone was crying. We were dressed in all white and Rich's Grandpa Cope sealed us together as an eternal family. After we went outside the temple and took pictures.

I am grateful that we are a family forever and I am so glad that we have Temples. I know this church is true and I am so grateful for my family and I love them very much.


He did such a great job and wasn't even nervous. He gave his talk right after they had sung "I Love to See the Temple" and it was perfect. I am so proud of Alex and want him to know that I love him very much and I too am so happy to be an eternal family.

That is so neat that he got to do that. I remember when you went through, too. I was glad that I got to be there (and take your awesome pictures afterwards!) It's so neat to have your kids in there with you. I have looked forward to it with each of our kids since we get to go in with each one to have them sealed to us after their adoption is finalized.

Whoa, tear jerker! I may be a little teary eyed after reading that... What a sweet kid! And what an amazing experience to remember. It is so comforting to know that you will all be together forever.
